Between Red and Green

He grabbed the window seat as the engine roared to life He could gawk at the rosy world forgetting his strife Just then, Gods decided to bestow him with a gift For, that day his cursory glance forgot to shift When the bus halted seeing a red light! She sat in luxury, oblivious of his gaze He kept on looking at her as if in daze Hoping against hope, that he would catch her eye Heavens cackled loudly, scowling at his hopeless, futile try Wondering when would love learn the ways of the world! Her soft brown eyes felt his presence and looked up to see His mirthful eyes holding hers with an odd but sweet plea Her frown and smile were a profound mismatch Like their social stature; gold robe with abysmal patch But as it happens with love, the green light turned it blind!   Penmancy gets a small share of every purchase you make through these links, and every little helps us continue bringing you the reads you love!
